Cocktail Meatballs
I made these for a party in a slow cooker, and most of them were gone by the end of the party. Like a few others, I "cheated" and used frozen store-bought meatballs in the interest of saving time. The sauce was flavorful and not too sweet.

Cheese Dip II
To make this vegetarian-friendly for a party, I omitted the ground beef and the water, and this came out perfectly! My friends agreed that adding the taco seasoning gave this a little extra zing. It was nearly gone at the end of the evening.

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust
Thanks to Ruth's Grandma, I won't buy another pie crust. Pie crusts scared me--they always seemed so difficult to make and I've failed a few times. Not only is this recipe simple, but it makes a darn good crust. A tip from my expert-baker mother-in-law: use very cold water (ice water) and don't handle the crust too much. That makes for a very flaky crust. This is a keeper. No more lousy processed pie crusts for me!
